Jane Fonda is giving us an update on her health, and luckily it’s a good one! The actress took to Instagram to reveal her cancer is officially in remission. “Last week I was told by my oncologist that my cancer is in remission and I can discontinue chemo. I am feeling so blessed, so fortunate. I thank all of you who prayed and sent good thoughts my way. I am confident that it played a role in the good news,” she wrote.
In September, the Grace and Frankie actress announced that she had begun chemotherapy treatment for a “very treatable” form of cancer known as non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. According to the American Cancer Society, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a common form of cancer in the United States. The cancer begins in white blood cells called lymphocytes, which are part of the human body’s immune system.

“I’m especially happy because while my first 4 chemo treatments were rather easy for me, only a few days of being tired, the last chemo session was rough and lasted 2 weeks making it hard to accomplish much of anything. The effects wore off just as I went to D.C. for the first live, in-person Fire Drill Fridays rally. Thank heavens for that because it was a busy week,” Fonda went on to add,
The actress has been pretty public about her health issues in the past. Back in 2019, she told British Vogue she has “had a lot of cancer” and frequently sees skin doctors quite often for removal “procedures. She also stated in 2010 that she had removed a non-invasive breast tumor but said she was “cancer-free” shortly after.
